Many of us cannot afford some of the art that we love (like Dale Chihuly glass.) Everyone who comes to visit us in the PNW is told they need to go to the Tacoma Glass Museum and the Seattle Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum at the Seattle Center to see Dale’s work.
I also love to know what music people are listening to because I love hearing all kinds of music. And don’t get me started on books…. If you aren’t reading, you are so missing out on a rich world.
Take time to share the music, art and books that you love with friends. Art and artists are a VERY important part of our lives.
Checkout Cheryl Bentyne’s (Manhattan Transfer) newest solo album. Release date is OCTOBER 6 …you can find it on Artistshare, ITunes, and Amazon.
I think we have all had this experience when someone remembers something we said to them and you realize they ‘heard’ you. I know it makes me feel good. Recently a friend reminded me of something I had said to him almost a year ago. Nice!
When people talk to you, listen, and let them know you heard them.
I am guessing that everyone reading this has a story that they were or are still ashamed to tell. Telling your story sets you free and can also be an inspiration to others.
Many times when you tell your story you never know how it affects or helps another person. You may never know the affect it has but when someone lets you know how telling your story helped them, it is such a gift.
Don’t be ashamed to share your story no matter how awful/disgusting you may think it is. You just might inspire someone to get out of an abusive relationship, or survive a rape or just feel better about themselves knowing someone else has gone through the same time.
